Mirza Aslam Beg a accusé les États-Unis d’avoir commandité les assassinats du Premier ministre pakistanais Benzair Bhutto et de l’ancien Premier ministre libanais Rafic Hariri. Il a précisé que ces opérations avaient été exécutées par la société privée Blackwater (désormais dénommée Xe). Le général Beg était chef d’état-major interarmes de 1988 à 1991. Il servait alors sous les ordres du président Ghulam Ishaq Khan et du Premier ministre Bénazir Bhutto, dont c’était le premier mandat (notre photo). Le général Beg, qui (avec Mumtaz Bhutto, Elahi Bux Soomro et le général Gul) a beaucoup fait dès 2002 pour populariser au Pakistan les analyses de Thierry Meyssan sur le 11-Septembre, reste extrêmement actif dans la vie politique via le think tank qu’il préside, la Foundation for Research on International Environment National Development and Security.
